in this administration. it was no accident in 2008 when president obama selected then senator joe biden to be his running mate. you'll remember it served in the senate for 38 years. at the time he won the democrat national nomination. barack obama only served the united states senate for only two. joe biden is an old hand at what goes on here. and you have seen that played out over and over again over these past four years. the vice president put in charge with republicans on the debt ceiling and brought in most recently for these 24 proposals that have been put forward on the gun control. and the vice president brokered that last minute deal being avoided at the end of the year. when you look at the obama presidency and four years from now when this history is going to be written, vice president joe biden is going to fill a roll in that history that is particular to him and larger than any other vice president we have seen before. really reinvented the vice president before that, they did not have all that much to do besides check on the health of the president. but really, the modern era now we've seen
in the demeanor as i said to senator rubio of president obama. is he a little more in your face than he was before the election. just real quick, rosen, you have seen that change? >> yeah. and i think the nomination of chuck hagel shows it. >> bill: okay. now, cammeron, you have some inside stuff on the gun control battle. go. >> yeah. we're sort of looking past the inaugural into what happens after that the president is going to go right back to the campaign trail. lots of the same sort of pomp and circumstance out with the folks that we saw during the actual election year campaign. it will be about the gun agenda as well as immigration and climate change in the debt ceiling where the gun issue is concerned, we will see rallies and town halls and lots of big gun control type money on tv screens. on the other side of all of this the national rifle association is planning a big ad blitz on its own. first one on the web started in the last day or so. it busts the president for hypocrisy because is he skeptical about the idea of armed guards in schools while his kids go to a private school here in d.
, 380 times they did it to obstruct president obama's agenda, and senate democrats i think are sick of this. senator tom harkin of iowa said on my radio show today without meaningful filibuster reform, it could be a rough second term for president obama. >> i said to obama one time we were in iowa, the night before the election, he was in iowa, the night before the election, i said to him, i said, look, i want some of your time after the election. he said sure, what about? filibuster. i said you get reelected, if you get reelected and we don't change the filibuster rules in the senate, you might as well take a four-year vacation, because you won't get anything done. >> senator harkin also told me about the so-called 41 rule that would require 41 republicans to vote in order to maintain a filibuster instead of requiring the majority party to find 60 votes to break one. folks, 60 votes, it isn't going to happen in the senate. not in this political climate. senator reid had included the 41 rule in his proposal, but politico reported late tonight he dropped the rule after talks with mcc
, it prevents the senate from passing things but on a more basic level of day-to-day lives this isy barack obama can't get any of his nominations through. the senate republicans have stood in the way of many nominations. they've unanimously blocked or filibustered any minority or woman that barack obama suggested to get in the judiciary. this is the existing problem in the functioning of the government and something that harry reid should have stood up for today. this is a horrible deal and they haven't filled is it out yet. >> jennifer: it is depressing as we lead into the next story karl, about guns, it makes one very discouraged that something will ever get done. the national rifle association afternooned an attack on senator feinstein, and they said, senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. it's disappointing but not surprising that she's once again focused on curtailing the constitution. curtailing the constitution. karl, what is getting lost in translation here? >> i think the message that dianne feinstein or many others would say to the n ra you
secretary of state. senator kerry is noted for his experience and relationship building skills. he was nominated by president obama after his first choice, united nations ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. >>> senator kerry will undoubtedly be forced to deal with north korea while at the state department. the communist nation said today it will carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the united states. the announcement comes one day after the united nations security council agreed to a u.s. backed resolution to censure and sanction north korea for a rocket launch last month. >>> coming up on wusa9, get a room. we'll tell but a new campaign to bring couples and their cash to d.c. >> howard? >> jc, we have sunshine now but some winds are beginning to gust. these temperatures are some kind of cold. 23 at andrews. 25 crofton. 24 centreville. i'll be back talking about storm number >>> a new campaign is under way to bring love, romance and people to the nation's capital. date nights d.c. is an effort to increase hotel bookings, restaurant reservation

on the left might be some democrats and some republican-leaning seats in the senate, states that need to win their senate seats in order for the democrats to continue holding majority in the senate we're talking about arkansas, alaska, north carolina and so forth. and if obama wants to pursue an aggressive agenda in the second term, he can't afford to lose the senate and not have either the senate or the house. >> you know, dan, i agree with you about the one essential here, that is economic growth. the president can't come close to finding his ambitions with 2% growth and he can't come close to raising middle class incomes which have been falling since the economic recovery started, without getting growth to 3, 4%. that will see, that seems to me to be what will determine whether or not his second term is ultimately a success. >> and facts historically low in the first term if he doesn't get it up it's not going to happen, paul. >> i agree with you, dan. >> when we come back a 26-year-old computer hacker commits suicide after a federal indictment that could have put him behind bars for deca
president obama's inaugural speech. senator john mccain and said there was no outreach to the g.o.p. there's no surprise that they didn't work well the last four years, but will a new congress bring a new outlook. and joining us is a freshman congressman, tom cotton, and we contacted every single freshman democrat in congress, none of them agreed to take part in the panel tonight. congressmen, welcome. what do you think of the speech. >> i was in awe, and it was shocking the speech is so liberal. yes, it's president barack obama, he's liberal. i thought some of the things are great. all americans believe in, freedom, and how do we implement that. do we need more government in our lives and spending our children into debt. how do we accomplish things. bring the adults to the table and start soming the economic problems. >> greta: what do you think. >> first the town was typical barack obama i thought. and wanted to paint his opponents as wrong, but morally wrong and doing this with paul ryan for two years, the thoughts of bugetary issues, doesn't engage in ideas calls him names and question
. americans deserve better. all of those words were taken from then senator obama's statement before he voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006. truer words cannot have been spoken today. the debt burden the president was concerned about a few years ago is still a very real threat today. congress should pass a responsible budget so we have a road map to get to our serious debt burden. no budget, no pay. >> i'm not sure i need this stool, but i'm a freshman. i'm new. i was sworn in just three weeks ago today and as a new member of the 113th congress, i know how they do things in washington, d.c.,. i know how they do things in missouri's 2nd congressional district. i'm a mother of three kids and have small business roots and all i know is that every family, every household, every business, every individual must have and pass a budget. we must live within our means. it is past time, way past time for the united states senate to pass a responsible budget that is going to put us on a path towards prosperity and is going to grow our economy and is going to create jobs and increase the standa
think it is interesting to have a republican senator calling president obama combative given the nature of in congress and how the senate has blocked and pushed them into a corner. i think there is some room for the president to reach out to members of congress more, build those relationships more. have one-on-one meetings with them, do golfing with them, but we have to keep in mind that when we came into office, his leadership style was consensus. that is at the heart of this man. what is unfortunately happened, republicans have said, we're not going to come to the take and participate. we're going block and be the party of no. so you have to go to executive actions or executive orders. that is not how government should work. hopefully they will... ford, you know that the republicans have blocked everything. he has at the point where he has to take executive actions. >> and 2nd amendment. president obama won less than 42% in the last election. i'm telling you there are a lot of senate democrats who prize the second amendment and if they go against it they are not going to win the elect
. and moving the obama agenda forward. it deserves to be debated on the senate floor. the senate has a responsibility to fix what is obviously broken. the senate has a responsibility to the americans who want jobs, who are seeing them move overseas and women who earn less than men for the same job and americans still looking for work and people looking for a path to citizenship. how in the heck are you ever going to get immigration reform done if we have to put up with the republicans with all their filibusters? these are victims of what the filibuster has become. if harry reid is going to take steps to change the rules, he needs to make it count. harry, you've got to do this. go for the jugular. since when do you trust mitch mcconnell on anything? he will stab you in the back in a new york second, politically. let's turn to larry cohen, president of the coalition of american workers. coalition of organizations that support the reform. we appreciate your time. how important is this? is there a chance if this doesn't happen that the 113th will be just like the 112th? >> there's a seri
patrick leahy. then life inauguration coverage including the swearing in of president obama and your phone calls. >> joining us on "newsmakers", senator patrick leahy. thank you for being with us. joining us is a congressional reporter for "the new york times." let me begin with the comments made this past week as the president outlined his gun strategy. he made a passing reference to violent in media. you said you want to take a closer look at that part of the debate. how can congress legislate morality when it comes to gun violence or movies? >> movies and television and what not the response and not the congress. it to be family members, parents. with my grandchildren there are programs that are not allowed to watch. i think that is right. we should be doing more of that. the industry has to ask itself how glamorous do they make killings, at the same in a movie. there's nothing glamorous about somebody being killed. i was at a number of murder scenes when i was a prosecutor. there's nothing glamorous about that. i worry about people glamorizing it. the issue has been rais
payments. in 2006, when speaking in opposition to increasing the debt limit, the senator obama said the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. those comments hold true today. that is why it is disappointing that the president is declining to engage in a meaningful dialogue to identify a responsible, balanced approach to reduce spending. and, reducing the deficit, which the president promised to cut in half during his first term. of course, it is tough to cut the deficit when the senate, controlled by the president's own party, will not or cannot even produce a budget. it has been four years since the democrat-controlled senate has passed a budget. that is a disgrace. i fully expect republicans and democrats will disagree about what the budget should look like, even when one party has a majority in both the senate and house, the two parties often disagree. the failure to resolve the differences is the problem. how can we even start to find common ground if senate democrats will not tell us where they stand? in the first pla
in an extraordinary circumstance. >> it is something senator graham has done before but not to either the president obama's supreme court picks. he says absent glaring extremism republicans have a duty to defer to the president. >> you cannot expect to lose the election and still get to control who goes on the court. you can push back if it is an extreme pick but elections have consequences. >> consequences that last far beyond one or two four-year terms. >> any president should think about the mark he is making on the judiciary because it is one of the most fundamental legacies you leave, the justices you appoint, the lower court judges will it is for decades longer than you serve as president. >> no justices have publicly hinted at leaving the retirement watch heats up near the end of e term in june when they could step down. >>bret: the defining moment is the inaugural address. we are told it will be forward-looking. aides say it will emphasize the founding values. tenth, chief washington correspondent on what we have heard before and will likely hear tomorrow. >> the more things hope and change
, and to have this opportunity to join with senator warren and senator mccain in introducing president obama's nominee to be the next secretary of state. i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we have heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people in posts around the world. working toge
for republicans even though president obama was the united states senator representing illinois, he likes to work around congress. on dealing with congress, roy blunt says he needs to be realistic. >> he speaks in general terms. he likes the executive order approach a lot better than the legislative approach and you can't get that far with executive orders. you've got to legislate, you don't control the whole congress. >> reporter: he says with a divided government. republicans controlling the house, democrats controlling the senate and obviously the white house, there is an opportunity to get big things done. >> eric: the president's allies and staff saying about this, any change? >> reporter: essentially what they are saying he will use inspirational words to try to motivate the country. tomorrow lab general layout of what he wants to do over the next four years, where he wishes to take the country. when he does the state of the union address he'll get in more detail. here is david plouffe. >> he is going to talk about our political system to resolve all of our disputes, but it does require to

: senator rubio is right. in an unguarded moment when he was senator obama heat mock religion and people who claimed done for security. that is an indication of his feelings about them. when it comes to a tradition the city of chicago which was so anti second amendment the supreme court of the united states, a two majority opinions to tell chicago you can't stop people from purchasing and keeping arms in their home. the president comes from that tradition and senator rubio is correct. charles: let's check the markets. last time we checked the dow was up 32 points and starting to gain fraction of 53 points right now. let's go to the stock exchange. ebay had a good number. how are those shares faring? nicole: ebay it is that are new multi-year high up about 3% at $54.52. they give a forecast for 2014 in line with analyst expectations but the latest quarter which included the holiday shopping season did very well for a couple reasons. they worked on customer service and such including free shipping, making returns easier. those are the factors that have been cited. the other thing we should not

the senate. president obama is going to serve second term that is the message this week in washington, right? at the inauguration and the parade and the fancy dress dances and the obamas showing off at the white house with the dog. but away from washington, outside the beltway, republicans are working fast right now to use their power in the states to make it so that democrats structurally cannot win no matter what. joining us now is donald mckeachen. senator, thank you very much for your time. it's great to have you here. >> thanks for having me, rachel. >> were you surprised by how quickly republicans in your state passed these new maps? did you know this was coming? >> absolutely not, rachel. you know, we asked for a heads up back in november if they were going to do this. and we were sure we would be given the heads-up. in a span of literally 40 minutes, because they limited debate. literally in 40 minutes, they rewrote 40 senate districts without any input from the public, without any input from my side of the aisle. they rammed it down our throats. even though it was daylight outside,
exchanges occurred after a republican senator ask why it took the obama administration so long to determine the assault was actually not the result of any spontaneous protest. here is secretary clinton's response to that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> whether it was because after protest or because of guys out for a walk one night decided they would go kill some americans, what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. martha: that was the most heated moment of the proceedings yesterday. joined by wyoming republican senator john barrasso, who was there who also questioned senator clinton. secretary of state clinton yesterday. he is on the senate foreign relations committee. welcome, good to have you here. >> thank you, martha. martha: why you surprised by that reaction? >> i was because it really does make a difference. it makes a difference to the american people. i would imagine it makes a big difference to the press and o

's a democratic senate. 20 democrats are up for re-election in 2014. they're not as left wing as he is. they certainly didn't get elected in states as democrat and blue as obama did. so he's asking those guys to go out in front on his tax policies, his spending policies. remember, he just signed to make permanent 85% of the bush tax cuts in dollar terms, 99% of the bush tax cuts in terms of who was affected. these are tax cuts the democratic party has run against for 12 years as a bad idea from start to finish. so the republicans made a hundred steps forward and took back either one or 15 steps and then obama locked it in. why? largely because democrats in the senate did not want to be attached to the size of tax increases that the president wanted. so he has a democrat senate that's not as left wing as he is. reid may be, but reid has to take care of his own. and a republican house elected every bit as much as he was. >> let me bring jake back. you got an update from the white house about this. >> well, just what his next hundred days will look like. obviously he's talked about trying
, before the senate this morning, her voice wavered as she described comforting those who lost their loved ones. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy, it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> shepard: but, perhaps, the most contentious moment of the day between secretary clinton and the republican senator ron johnson. >> we were mislead that there was supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protests or guys out for a walk one night and decided they would go kill some americans. what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened an
are the republicans doing now in the house? they're attacking the senate. because they realize that obama has mobilized part of the public against them and -- >> the only way we're going to get gun control is going to be about background checks. it's going to come through the senate. got to stick his neck out and do something on background checks right away. thank you david corn and michael scherer. >>> up next, why does the gop, the guns over the people party, keep saying crazy things about president obama's modest gun safety proposals? the president's trying to do the reasonable thing yet the people on the nra right are going nuts over this. they're armying up for the final struggle against the government, the elected government. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, the right wing hawks are on thin ice after this >>> well, the right wing hawks are on thin ice after this tuesday's election in israel. benjamin netanyahu's party was expected to win big. but the big surprise was the rise of the new center. the center left party which means there is a future. right now will cont

-1. and there were just five state senators, including barack obama, who voted "present" on that bill. >>steve: i see the daily caller -- you've tracked down a long record on obama voting against tough on crime legislation. >> my colleague and i went to chicago. this was in the midst of the election and picked up opposition research prepared by jack ryan, obama's onetime republican senate point. he found all this information. the way he frames it, and i think it's probably right, is that obama was always very soft on crime but very tough on guns. every time obama had a crime vote to take when he was in the illinois state senate, he always voted "present" because he didn't want to -- for two reasons. one, he said that criminal law disproportionately affected african-americans. he saw a racial component there. additionally, he said i don't want to clog the court system with all these cases. what do you want to clog the court system with? we thought given his rhetoric on guns lately it would be interesting to bring up this vote where he said i don't want to give tougher prosecution to children who shoot
of power; obama in the white house, democrats in control of the senate, republicans of the house. but appearances can be deceiving and in this case are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan -- which was their own only a few years earlier -- socialism was not reward withed. rewarded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was the important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> host: two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.

on camera with us today. they seemed a little camera shy, perhaps wanting to give president obama his day. but one key senate republican said he wishes the president had spoken more about the need to reform medicare, medicaid and social security. >> unfortunately, right now, we have a situation where it is generational fest. we are leaving our kids and grand kids with incredible burdens of debt and deficit unless we reform these important programs. i think the choice the president ought to be laying out instead and ought to be telling the american people yes, we can do. this we can even improve these programs in certain important ways but we have to address it. >> the senator from ohio says he wishes the president had given more examples of areas where republicans and democrats could work together, shep. a major test coming next week. >> that's right. you have got the house is going to take up later this week as a matter of fact on wednesday. they are going to vote on increasing the nation's borrowing limit the debt ceiling as it is called. okay wednesday they are going to do that vote. t
